Escalator maintenance is labor-intensive and expensive. Castrol Lubecon automates lubrication: reducing labor costs and increasing chain life.
Escalator maintenance is expensive, time-consuming, and also risky for personnel who have to get into the pit to manually apply the oil. Just as importantly, manual application can often miss the all-important pin points of the chain. Not only does this accelerate wear, it can also cause spills in the pit area.
Castrol® Lubecon has solved these issues by introducing proven, automated technology to the escalator sector. Custom-fit and custom-mounted lubricators are installed at carefully determined points along each chain. They are fed by a central reservoir that enables them to automatically dispense precise applications of dry-film lubricant at pre-defined intervals, which are targeted directly onto chain pin points.
This precise use of dry lubricants not only reduces the chances of oil contamination and grease slips, it can increase chain life from as little as 2-3 years to 10-15 years. It can also reduce oil consumption down to 5 gallons per year, which is a significant savings when you consider that the escalator maintenance can go through up to 200 gallons of oil a year. You even get to free up the valuable time of maintenance staff and increase the uptime that's so important to the customer experience.
Castrol® Lubecon is proven to increase staff safety and reduce your Total Cost of Ownership by fully automating escalator lubrication. Speak to a LubeCon expert today to discover the significant time and cost savings that a customized and automated escalator lubrication system could offer you.
